2006 Sebring oil leak
2006 Chrysler Sebring
2006 Sebring with repeating oil leak. I have a 2006 Sebring with a 2.4L engine that has had the seals replaced twice and it still kept pouring oil. My mechanic found out that the 2005 and 2006 engines were missing a thrust bearing and so it kept pushing the crankshaft against the timing belt which pushed out the front seal.
Chrysler fixed the design by adding a second thrust bearing with a new revision to the engine. After 8 weeks and $5500 of repair and rental bills, I have a new half block and it seems to be fixed. I am trying to find out if any others had the same 2006 Sebring oil leak issue. Thanks for any info you can give.
